Dream Catcher

Hi, it's Laura here today with a ribbon-y dream catcher.
This is the most enjoyable project I have made in a while!  Isn't it fun?!

To make one you'll need a selection of ribbons and the inside of a roll of sticky tape!

I added strings of buttons and lace to my ribbon dangles.  I added some vellum feathers to the end of some of the ribbons.

The tape roll (I uses the inside of a 3mm double sided roll) is simply wrapped in ribbon until it is covered.  Then to make the web I followed some instructions I found online.  It is quite simple when you get going, but describing it is pretty tricky!

Here is a list of the ribbons and laces I used - all from Crafty Ribbons.

Chantilly Anna Lace
Chantilly Mollie Lace
Organza Swiss Dot White/White
3mm Island Blue
3mm Petal Peach
3mm Peach
3mm Blue Vapour
Swiss Dot Blue Vapour
Swiss Dot Island Blue/Peach
Heart Buttons
Basic Buttons Pastel
Basic Buttons Mixed
Basic Buttons Baby Blue

If there is enough interest I will put together a step by step guide... just leave me a comment or contact me through social media!

Camping in July 2015

OK, so you might notice I like these ribbons
from the range Summer Festival very much... 
I made a minialbum with one cardstock and
all around it I put the wide Camping Van ribbon: 

I live in Sweden and weather here was cloudy and
rainy during the last three weeks of July. Below you
find Camping Van ribbon to the left and the 
Caravan ribbon to the right side below.

Below right I used the Grass ribbon. 

And on the last spread there is a special
ribbon I find very suitable: Wellie ribbon.

Back side of the mini album looks like this:

Have a lovely time using the Summer Festival 
ribbons! If you want more details; my blog is HERE.

Hi, Laura here today.  I have another layout using Crafty Ribbons gorgeous viscose lace in mint.  I'm finding it is my go to lace at the moment as it matches all of the current scrapbook collections.

It is such a great material for layering, it adds so much texture with the frills peeping out from under paper layers.
